re: which douchebag designed bathroom stalls - 1MileTiger
Iceland's bathroom situation was on-fricking-point. They had your typical urinals, but the airport had these fricking bathroom suites. [img]https://lutefiskandlingonberries.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/sam_07141.jpg?w=900[/img] Personal suites included full ceiling to floor locking door. Inside, ...

re: Fallout 4 with Fallout 3 - 1MileTiger
I bought the hard copy for Christmas and actually just installed FO3 with my code last night. Going back to the graphics makes you realize what a huge step Bethesda took. A lot of people didn't see much difference, but going through the character builder makes you realize how alien like the AI chara...

re: Has anyone here visited Iceland? - 1MileTiger
Just got back from Iceland yesterday. It was one of the greatest trips I've ever taken. Food and excursions can add up quickly, but I wouldn't say it's any worse than most other tourist spots. $30-45/meal is generally what we paid to eat. ...

re: TOPS Only Requires an ACT of 20 - 1MileTiger
[quote]has an upper class family[/quote] I hate that this is a factor in scholarship decisions. Just because the books say a kid comes from an upper class household, doesn't mean the family is providing any assistance for their education. I know quite a few folks who got no support from their wea...

re: TOPS Only Requires an ACT of 20 - 1MileTiger
The truth is, if you aren't black, Asian or Latino, you aren't getting substantial scholarships to prestigious schools. BIL had a 34 ACT and came from upper-middle class Colorado, they looked at the income of his step-father who wasn't providing any financial assistance and laughed....

re: TOPS Only Requires an ACT of 20 - 1MileTiger
Let's just say, sitting at 26 with 0 student debt and an IT management career living in Colorado, I'm happy with my decision. I see so many friends still paying off thousands of dollars in student debt for an equivalent education from state schools across the country. The TOPS program is brilliant, ...

[quote]Jones[/quote] Not sure I'm referring to anything you've said. Just stating that going to LSU with a 32 shouldn't be that big of a shock. Going to out-of-state school with partial scholarships is not a wise financial decision when LSU is practically free....

re: TOPS Only Requires an ACT of 20 - 1MileTiger
[quote]Salmon[/quote] If I remember correctly, the tuition "value" was spread evenly between all public schools. What I mean is LSU probably had the highest cost of attendance, but you got the same amount if you went to USL. My dad gave me a hard time because I wanted to leave Lafayette where USL...

re: TOPS Only Requires an ACT of 20 - 1MileTiger
34, 35 and 36 are worlds different than a 32. I also got "scholarships" for DII football, but I'd prefer to focus on an education than spend 4 years at some shite school playing games on Saturday at a leased local high school. As per the free room and board, I can guarantee you the option wasn't...

re: TOPS Only Requires an ACT of 20 - 1MileTiger
2007, the Chancellor's scholarship only covered an additional $600/semester. There was no higher tier TOPS that covered room and board, I don't know where you are getting that information. There was a higher tier which gave you an additional stipend, but didn't touch the cost of living on campus and...

re: TOPS Only Requires an ACT of 20 - 1MileTiger
Got a 32 on the ACT and did 4 years at LSU. As mentioned before, people forget about the $600 in books and $5000+/semester it costs to live and eat. While the tuition being free was huge in allowing me to not get a useless degree from USL, it didn't make for free college. There are some great RA job...

re: Now I realize how bad education in LA is.. - 1MileTiger
My point is that STM, who most would consider Lafayette's best school, still falls incredibly short compared to even the oldest facilities in Denver Metro. When a state cares more about eradicating historical statues or what to do with a mediocre football coach than it's run-down educational facilit...

re: Now I realize how bad education in LA is.. - 1MileTiger
Seeing the schools in Denver metro area and in Utah make me realize how shitty the education system is in Louisiana. I took my wife to Lafayette High School a few years ago, and she said it was the most depressing prison-like building she'd ever been to. I live in Douglas County which is one of t...
